Trees are used to improve the aesthetic value of the home and the landscape and allow the generation before us to leave a legacy behind. Beside the aesthetic value, trees help to provide protection to properties by reducing wind velocities and providing shade during the warm summer months. Trees usually are raised in a nursery or tree farm prior they planted into the landscape.
Diseases can significantly reduce the aesthetic value. Environmental conditions and mechanical damage can provide stress and make the trees more susceptible to disease development.
